Momentum is a Hinckley Sou’wester 51, currently in Portsmouth, Rhode Island. Hinckley claims her to be the best and most versatile Sou’wester around, having been built originally by a “knowledgeable yachtsman with a design brief for a performance sailing yacht that could compete successfully, and yet be easily cruised singlehanded or with relatively inexperienced guests in comfort and safety.”
She’s clearly been well-cared for and updated throughout, with new electronics, a rebuilt engine, fresh topsides and new sails.
Her interior is beautifully finished in high-gloss American cherry, with customized details not found in any other Hinckley.
She comes with an impressive sail inventory, 13 sails in all – primarily from North and Quantum. She’s built for speed, with many parts designed to be easily removed for conversion from cruising to racing, including removable electric winch motors, autopilot, windlass, anchor roller, etc.
Designed by McCurdy & Rhodes, Momentum is truly a head turner in any port. Find her here at Hinckley.
